marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
                          march 1 1989


supposedly at the height of my powers
yet this illness and mother

if i could write what i feel what i know
no library can hold a woman's thoughts

when a woman puts down another woman all
she's talking about male supremacy

when a man puts down a woman all
do you know who you are

finally enough scotch to feel sorry for myself
the moon may or may not be full

my ideas what ideas for the next painting series
this time can i catch up to myself

no don't think no don't feel put it all on hold
'dear marlene you are so brave'

Brussels Sprout 8:1 1991
